Plan an Event

If you have a great idea for an event, we would love to hear your proposal. We are looking for students, faculty or staff to host an event related to the theme of Creating a legacy of understanding from a world of connection.

2023 marks a return to IDays and launches TRU World’s 40th anniversary. IDays 2023 will not only celebrate 40 years of international excellence and innovation, but it will explore themes central to TRU, such as Inclusion & Diversity, Community-mindness, Curiosity & Sustainability.

Whether you know exactly what your event will be or if you just have a great idea, let us know, we want you to be a part of our celebrations. We will assist with event coordination and marketing if your event is chosen.

  • Debate (award prize)
  • Workshops
  • Displays (research, posters, etc.)
  • Scholar presentation
  • 15-minute IDays talk (BMO Student Street)

Event criteria

In order to maintain high-caliber events supported by the university, we would like to invite participants to create events that truly reflect the intercultural and international nature of our campuses and programs. The selection process will be based on the following:
